Glock magazine aka newsletter

Is there a magazine glock publishes?

I'm looking into a magazine to follow for guns, I'd rather it be glock specific but I don't know if those exist. If they don't, can someone recommend good gun magazines?

Glock does put out an annual magazine. I don't remember when it comes out. I don't know of any other Glock specific mags.There are alot of pistol mags at wmart and grocery stores. Pick some you like and then subscribe. It's much cheaper.

Combat Handguns is a fun one, but like all gun rags....the guns "tested" are usually one big advertisement for the manufacturers.

(the "testers" won't get new guns to test if they take them to task)

Glock Inc. does not publish the Glock Autopistols annual. It's published by Harris Publications in NYC, which publishes many other magazines as well. It usually appears in January and stays on the newstands for about three months.

There are always examples of inconsistent and incorrect information found in each issue. In the 2014 issue:

1. There is an article that claims the G24 has a 5.3-in barrel.
2. It features compensated models that Glock announced in 2013 would be discontinued in January 2014.
3. It lists the G20, G21, G29, and G30 non-SF models, likewise discontinued in January.
4. It does not list data for the Gen4 G33, but it does show show a picture of it.
5. It has an article that implies that the G41 has a 5.5-lbf connector, when non-Blue Label versions come with 4.5-lbf connectors.

These and other errors would not be expected in a Glock company publication, yet careless errors like these show up year after year after year. Glock Autopistols is a profit-making publication for Harris, with some input from Glock that works to the advantage of both. AFAIK, it is not possible to subscribe to its one annual issue.

For good inexpensive all-round firearms magazines, I have dropped the several I once subscribed to, in favor of Guns & Ammo, plus the NRA's American Rifleman. They are not Glock-specific, nor even handgun-specific, but they do well enough.

Mike thanks. I'd do guns and ammo over nra magazine. I found guns and ammo more interesting, probably because it had more pictures= )

I belong to GSSF and I recall Glock sends something out about once a year. It's basically like an extended product brochure with information on the Glock matches.

Hmm. Well I guess they could only talk and show so much about glocl specifics before they ran out.

Not to mention their variety in gun looks would look the sameish
